Report: Tottenham Hotspur reject loan approach from unnamed club for young prodigy

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur have the youngest first-team squad in the Premier League.

During his time in the English game, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has become renowned for giving young stars the opportunity to prove themselves in the first-team, and he looks set to continue that trend with Kyle Walker-Peters, after Sky Sports' report claiming that the club have rejected a loan approach for the teenager.

The 19-year-old full-back has been with the club since 2015, but is still yet to make a senior appearance for Tottenham.

And Pochettino obviously has high hopes for the Edmonton-born defender, after his reported refusal to allow him to leave the club on loan, as reported by Sky Sports, who suggest that an un-named club came in for him this month.

The Argentine is a big believer in having his young stars amongst the first-team squad, training and travelling with the group, in a bid for them to learn the ins and outs of being a professional footballer at the very highest level.

The problem for Walker-Peters is that he has both Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier ahead of him in the right-back pecking order at White Hart Lane, so his chances of any kind of first-team action in the foreseeable future will be limited to say the least. 

So surely a loan move away from the club would in fact be beneficial for both Walker-Peters and Tottenham.

Pochettino obviously doesn't think so, however.
